I had a case in front of Judge Cohn. I do believe it is time he retires. I am mixed on him overall. We were successful but only after filing a motion for reconsideration. On the other hand, I have to give him a great deal of respect for overturning his own decision as most judges are very reluctant to do so. I have heard you do not want to catch him on a bad day as he can unleash his temper on a party/attorney. From criminal cases I have read, he seems fair for the most part, including jail time.

Brilliant, but mercurial. One can only hope to be in front of him on a "good" day.
